The story of Akutain begins over four decades ago, when Rioja’s storied estates were consistently producing Spain’s most highly sought-after wines. At this time, Juan Peñagaricano Akutain was an engineer in nearby Basque Country, working for a company that sold cooling units to wineries. Juan developed personal relationships with many Rioja bodegas and spent time tasting and learning in the region, most notably in the cellars of two of the great traditionalists of yesteryear – CVNE and La Rioja Alta.

The Akutain Reserva is comprised of mostly Tempranillo with Garnacha.  It was fermented with native yeasts in fiberglass vats, and raised in older American oak for 2 years and 10 months, with additional year in the bottle before release. A throwback to Rioja's past.
